Things don't slow down here just because it's summer! We've had a busy month since school let out. Here are some highlights from the last few weeks and what's coming up:
  • Here's a fun story: We checked in with Vicar Kendall Davis recently to see how his summer midweek Bible study is going at Ascension Lutheran, Wichita. He was excited to let us know that one of our guests from Fairmount Coffee saw his poster displayed here at the coffeehouse and they came to his Bible study at Ascension!
  • Our menu's been updated. Stop in and try one of our new delicious salads, wraps, and cold brew teas!
  • We've been planning and preparing for Vacation Bible School, which is next week!
  • There are a handful of events (both at Fairmount and in the community) scheduled in June & July. Check out our event calendars & watch social media for our events: Fairmount Ministries Event Calendar / Fairmount Coffee Event Calendar 
  • Another fun story: We recorded a WAY-FM Ministry Highlight in April for Fairmount Ministries & Coffee Company. We were their Ministry Highlight in May and now we are their June Ministry too! We've been on air 10+ times every day for the last month! It's been fun to hear from our Church family when they hear our spotlight, and we've even met new guests that heard about us for the first time on WAY-FM! Another development from this relationship is that WAY-FM asked to partner with us for our VBS and will be advertising it along with coming to participate in our family BBQ on Thursday next week!
  • The Community Garden is beautiful! Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who have given hours of your time to help plant and tend to the vegetables and herbs.
  • We will be hosting a Celebration of 60 Years in Ministry for Fairmount Ministries! The Gathering will be Friday evening, Sept 20. Mark your calendars!
  • Mark your calendars for our 2 Year Anniversary Party of Fairmount Coffee on Saturday, August 24.

Prayers for Fairmount

Would you pray for us? Here are some of our prayer needs:
  • Students: on summer break, serving in summer jobs, mission trips, and traveling on vacations.
  • Our facility. This month has been a difficult one with all the rain. We've had a few leaks in our roof and we've discovered that we will need a new roof and a new HVAC system. Please pray for God's continued provision for our ministry....and a few dry weeks!
  • The neighborhood children as they attend Vacation Bible School at Fairmount next week. May we be a blessing to them and show them the love of Jesus!
  • For the King of Kings Lutheran mission team as they travel to Wichita and serve in mission to Fairmount and other ministries around town.
  • That the Lord provides opportunities to talk with our guests about faith and the grace that comes through a relationship with Christ!
  • For our staff and volunteers to remain "on-fire" and to walk in faithfulness.
  • That the Lord would inspire our community to become monthly donors &/or get involved with Fairmount Ministries.
  • Thanksgiving for the many blessings and provisions He has given us, daily!

Become a Monthly Sustaining Partner

When we started the venture of Fairmount Coffee Co. two years ago, we were advised by many business consultants that most small businesses do not break even in their first 5 years of operations. So, it is not alarming that the coffeehouse ministry is not breaking even at this time. However, we are constantly working to improve our processes and make our ministry as sustainable as possible. One way to do this is by consistently evaluating our operations and making vital tweaks to products, procedures, pricing, labor costs, etc. The other way to make Fairmount Ministries & Coffee Co. a sustainable ministry is through your donations!
 
One of our financial goals is to increase our monthly gifts by $4,000 per month!

Would you please prayerfully consider becoming a sustaining partner with our ministry? 
Visit https://fairmountministries.churchcenter.com/giving and choose "Regularly" under "Frequency" to give monthly to Fairmount Ministries & Coffee Co. or mail checks to 3815 E 17th St. N., Wichita, KS 67208.


Children's Bibles

Help the Scriptures come alive for the little ones visiting our VBS in a week! We would love to be able to give each child their own Bible at the end of the week.

We have a VBS Amazon Charity Wishlist. We've put a few ideas of different levels of Bibles, ranging from toddler-Jr. High. Last year, we were able to give a Jr. High brother a Bible when he came to Fairmount to pick up his little sister!

Have a favorite edition of a Children's Bible? Drop by or mail it to Fairmount! We hope to be able to hand out Bible's on Thursday, June 20.

Check out our wishlist here!

Thank you for your continued prayers and support as we seek to provide opportunities to foster relationships, encourage community, and promote dialogue about faith and life, for the university and the community in order to bring people closer to Jesus Christ.
